Course description

This 4-day master-class workshop will provide a comprehensive introduction to the discipline of well integrity as it applies to geothermal wells. We will discuss in detail how we can achieve it effectively and efficiently during the design and operational phases, as well as after wells are abandoned. We will cover both the engineering and the human barriers put in place through a Well Integrity Management System (WIMS), after reviewing in depth the key concept of barrier, as described by Process Safety as well as the NORSOK, OEUK, and ISO standards. The topics will not be limited to man-made materials such as steel and cement: we will also focus on the huge advantages, as well as the challenges, of harnessing creeping formations to help achieve well integrity.

The sessions are geared towards geothermal energy professionals, who are encouraged to bring some of their challenges along so we can apply together the techniques and methods discussed in class. Practitioners from other industries dealing with deep wells, in particular Oil & Gas and energy storage as well as anybody from government and non-governmental organization wishing to understand what makes a well safe are also welcome to attend.

The seminar is interactive, participative, and hands-on, supported by real life examples and case studies; its open and relaxed atmosphere provides significant opportunities to network and exchange experience with peers and start finding answers to actual challenges in a collaborative setting.
